Born in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana in 1991, Hunter has been making music since about the time he learned to walk. He says: “By the time I was almost two, I was picking up everything and making an instrument out of it. My grandmother gave me a toy accordion for my second birthday and I immediately began picking up Cajun songs by ear from the radio.” While both of Hunter’s parents are music lovers, neither are musicians, so as he says, “The way I picked up music was out of left field, but, something in me was determined to learn how to play.” For more on this young man’s remarkable talent go here.
